Considering Cremation?

While most Catholics still prefer full-body burial, today some families and individuals may consider cremation as an alternative to traditional burial. Cremation is another way of preparing you or your loved one for remembrance and memorialization, which is an integral part of the grieving process. Like a traditional burial, choosing a permanent and dignified resting place for the human cremated remains of a departed loved one is equally important, especially for loved ones who will visit, pray, and remember.
